Introduction: Hey I'm Derek! I have had the privilege of being a wedding DJ for about 6 years now. I officially launched ONYX in 2020 as a way for customers to experience a “one stop shop” for their wedding/event needs. We offer DJ, Photography, Videography, Photo booth, Lighting, Hair and Makeup. I began my DJing job in Austin, TX with one of the TOP Wedding service companies in the U.S. and my mentor was voted #2 DJ in Austin! As a Nashville singer/musician, I love bringing fun and creativity to the dance floor. The wedding experience is something that is to be cherished and remembered forever. The idea of making even the slightest positive difference in the way the special night is remembered is what drives me to take my job very seriously and have lots of enthusiasm. Whether it be creating a unique playlist to your taste, getting your people on the dance floor, or just checking in with the wedding coordinator, I will always make sure the couple is taken care of throughout the night. My highest priority is to create a great environment and memories that will last a lifetime!

Derek and his DJ Daniel were top notch. They were prompt and professional. The music was on point and Daniel rolled with all of our last minute requests. We added the ceremony last minute and I am so glad we did. Everything was perfect and I was told our music was amazing by several guests. 10/10.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My typical pricing is based on 4 hours and within 30 miles of Nashville. Any extra hours or mileage I have to factor in a different pricing. But please don't hesitate to reach out and see if we can make it work!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I love meeting new couples, telling them about myself and answering any and all questions they may have. I have a detailed questionnaire for them to fill out for ceremony and reception to help organize everything and make sure that nothing goes unchecked. I will then either meet face-to-face, call, or facetime the couple to discuss all the details of the wedding or event to ensure a stress-free night!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a music producer in Nashville and I have a lot of experience singing/playing music in bands. In addition, I was trained by Austin, Tx's #2 DJ and worked for one of the top companies in the U.S. as a wedding DJ!
